Brandon's psychology teacher gave a lecture about positive and negative reinforcement.
Brandon , who rarely does homework, decides to make a storyboard about negative reinforcement because he has a bad grade in the class
I need to make a storyboard! Hopefully it will bring up my grade
Brandon worked very hard on the storyboard that night.
Brandon knew he had to present his storyboard in order to avoid getting an F in the class.
This story is an example of negative reinforcement because Brandon, in order to avoid getting an F in the class, makes a storyboard. Also, Brandon is more likely to do his homework in order to bring up his grade in the future.
This story is an example of negative reinforcement because Brandon is avoiding an F by making a storyboard. However, this is not a form of punishment. This is because negative reinforcement increases the chances of a response happening, he learned from his lesson and is more likely to do his homework. Punishment, on the other hand, decreases the chance that the response will occur again.
